Publisher's Summary

Answers and Insights from a Lifetime of Helping Families Flourish
Why do some families thrive for generations? What accounts for the sad deterioration that others experience? This book takes families and the professionals who serve them beyond the now widely accepted practices offered in Family Wealth and offers a view of Hughes's panoramic insights into what makes families flourish and fail. It lays out the basis for the vision of family governance the author has been developing through his work and research. His advice addresses not only what to do but how to think about the complex issues of family governance, growth, and stability, and the ongoing challenge of nurturing the happiness of each family member.

Is this a joke, duplicate

This seems to be exactly the same as another booked called Family Wealth, misleading to have the same book with two titles.

Good, but too philosphical

The author should have laid out a framework to follow, rather than the stream of consciousness this book seems to be. Good ideas, but the writing forced me to put the book down and no longer read it.
